AC/DC Rock Then Bust Melbourne Wide Open REVIEW

It certainly was a long way to the top for AC/DC. I remember the band posters displayed up and down President Ave in Sutherland in 1974. Even then they were building their army of fans. Students would talk about the ‘amazing guitarist in the school uniform’. AC/DC quickly became one of Sydney’s most popular bands. Little did we know that this quirky group of Sydney larrikins would one day take over the world.
